6:01pm
people out there, but we're not running into them yet. >> reporter: they tell homeowners to be aware, and ask to see every contractor's license. it proves the contractor has experience and has gone through a criminal background check. >> a lot of times people don't have licenses, they know they will never be able to passion. you have people convicted of fraud out here doing this work. >> everything you can imagine just burned. >> servpro is one of the comp y companies hired by pg&e to go through the houses and remove dangerous chemicals that could cause respiratory problems. >> right here where we are, we're in the lowest location, everything is going to run this way if it rains. >> reporter: now, city planning and building officials have come
6:02pm
up with a rough estimate of $38 million in property damage caused by this explosion that is just a rough estimate. some say just looking at those homeowners sifting through what used to be their belongings in their homes, how do you put a price on that? live in san bruno, traci grant nbc bay area news. >> thank you. more examples of victimizing the victims. you see it after every disaster. now san bruno police tell us they've arrested four people trying to get free food and other help by posing as victims of the explosion. police say bianti taylor tried to cash in tuesday. they have not been charged, but two other women were arrested for trying to pass themselves off as victims and get aide as well. heightened concerns about the smell of gas prompted the evacuation as two bay area schools today.
6:03pm
portollo elementary is located less than a mile from the explosion. firefighters and pg&e workers were called out. it turned out there wasn't a leak, but parents praised the school's quick actions. >> just the principal smelled a little bit of gas, and he's very smart to take the precaution and evacuate the school. especially where we're in the area where the gas pipe explosion occurred. so they evacuated the school, everything was done excellent. they left us a message, our children are safe. and i'm proud to be a portollo mom. libby, did you enjoy your bus ride? >> yeah. >> better safe than sorry. despite the all clear signal, classes were cancelled as you saw. later in the same day, san francisco elementary was also evacuated because of the smell of gas too. it also was a false alarm. fire officials say they're getting a lot more calls after last week's explosion. >> in less than an hour now, a vigil is set to begin for a
6:04pm
mother and daughter killed in the explosion. 44-year-old jacqueline greg and 13-year-old janessa greg are among the four people killed in the explosion that happened a week ago tonight. family and friends will gather at saint cecilia church for a vigil. a vigil for 20-year-old jessic morales who was also killed in the fire will be held tomorrow. we have an update on three patients. one is critical, two are in fair condition now. a fourth patient was released after treatment. well, 78 days and still no budget in sight. the legislative budget deadlock now poised to be the longest in california history. and yet legislative leaders say they are making progress. president darryl steinberg said today that democrats and republicans are about $2 billion a way from a deal.
6:05pm
some lawmakers suggested borrowing from the state's largest pension fund to help balance the books. >> it's frustrating, it's maddening, and it's embarrassing. the people of california, i think, have every right to be unhappy about it. >> in order to do that, they would have to approve any loan to the state, and the organization has already relesioned a letter yesterday blasting that proposal. larry geursten our analyst is here. why aren't we more patient about setting this record tomorrow? >> the ones who are most affected are the ones with the least influence. the students in k through 12 not getting their grants. all these people really don't have a lot of clout, once you start talking about people who are really affected like state workers, taking away their salaries, giving them iou's, then you'll see an awful lot of
6:06pm
noise. right now, it's the people who have been least affected who are talking about it. >> in large part, the state is still paying its bills. come next month, that's going to change significantly. when everybody starts feeling a little more pain, maybe then we'll get more information. >> caught a break this month. the controller told us, we're actually about $253 million came in more than they thought. yes, it will tide them over for one more month. all we're doing is pushing off. >> we just heard from the senate president that these negotiators are $2 billion. that might come as news to people in the state of california who really get the sense that nothing is happening up in sacramento. what's your take on this? are they getting close? >> if the $2 billion is coming from purrs, they're only 68% funded itself. how do you borrow from something that is incomplete. there's something to the story we don't know. it may be there, but we need to see more before we can say anything. >> apparently there's a lot to the story.
6:07pm
the democrats say they want to raise taxes and cut some things. the republicans say we're not raising any taxes, somewhere in there there had to be some significant compromise that we haven't heard about. >> the story is the same story we've heard for the last eight weeks. eight weeks ago governor schwarzenegger said we're just a couple billion dollars apart. well, we still are and it's eight weeks later. >> governor schwarzenegger is saying, i am not going to sinai bill that does not give me significant budget reform. and let's face it, we need budget reform or this is going to happen year after year after year. >> he has tacked on a set of requirements that will be very difficult to meet. he wants to have a great fund existing, so that when there is a shortage. there will be money out there. there is no fund. he wants to change the taxation. you don't just do that overnight. what the governor wantses are major changes, will be hard to believe that those changes can take place in the next couple
6:08pm
weeks. >> jerry brown, the attorney general yesterday. today the democratic candidate for governor, suggesting the way to do this is to start from scratch. nobody can build their budget request this year, based upon what their budget is this year. start from skranks from zero, and maybe that's the way to reform government. >> jerry brown is starting from scratch, meg whitman is spending less but giving more away. neither candidate has been truthful to the voters on this issue. people are tired of dancing. >> happy record day, and we'll talk to you soon. larry andpy both regularly post political blogs on prop zero, today i look at the money meg whitman has contributed to her own campaign and ask if she could have gotten a better return on the investments. go to nbcbayarea.com and click on political news. can you see an air helicopter flying over.
6:09pm

6:10pm
game out of the playoffs. our state is in a real mess. and i'm not going to give you any phony plans or snappy slogans that don't go anywhere.
6:11pm
we have to make some tough decisions. we have to live within our means. we have got to take the power from the state capitol and move it down to the local level, closer to the people. and no new taxes, without voter approval. we have got to pull together not as republicans or as democrats but as californians first. at this stage in my life, i'm prepared to do exactly that.
6:12pm
a ship on its way into the bay struck a whale and dragged it into the port of oakland. the coast guard believes the whale was dead when it was hit, because there are shark bites on the carcass. marine officials will have to figure out how to get the whale off the ship. a bay area mother is still hoping her son is alive, weeks after he vanished near his home in mexico. 47-year-old lane gilbert, a wealthy real estate developer disappeared nearly three weeks ago. today we're learning his car was found just hours after he was
6:13pm
seen. the mexican police have not detained the man carrying gilbert's i.d. as a suspect. there are many who believe their police force is picking on them booze of their race. nbc bay area's garvin thomas has more on that report, if true, shows a widening gap between a community and its police force. >> the relationship between latinos and the sjdp has been a rocky one to say the least. police arresting latinos for being drunk in public at a rate much higher than any other in the city. now pac has put out a survey on the police force. mostly latinos took the survey during church services. in it, 65% say they know someone who has been stopped by police for what they believe was no cause.
6:14pm
60% say they have had a car impounded. and 65% say san jose police work with immigration officials, though the san jose police chief says that is definitely not true. >> it's not something that the police department by themselves can solve, in terms of a communication problem. the san jose pd has bent over backwards to put out policies on immigration, we constantly have an influx of individuals. >> the chief will be stepping down at the end of next month, he hasn't seen the methodology of the survey, he's not sure how accurate it is. while he doesn't believe his officers are racially profiling, if the community believes it, that's something that needs to be addressed by whoever follows him, of course p.m. live in the newsroom, garvin thomas, nbc bay area news. >> thank you. concord police shot and wounded a robbery suspect earlier today, after he brandished a gun at him. it was a realistic looking toy. before dawn, an officer spotted
